Well done to all those of you who took the time to pass your comments to the EPA on the Pebble Mine issue.

Paul: Great read! Nice to see so many took the time to contact the EPA and voice their concerns over mining in Bristol Bay.

Well Paul it's like this,from what I've seen from travelling around Australia,visiting Old Ex Gold & Copper Mining Operations,as well as Open Cut Iron Ore Mines.
Most are either Deserted & Barren or Both.
The Corporate People who run these operations only worry about what they can put in their Pockets.
The people who control Pollution do their Job for a while,then when The Operation Closes it only becomes a Headache which no one wants to know about,their excuses always are;
Things need doing however "There's no Funds Available",mainly because it's been spent on something else.
Like many,many people I wouldn't like to see this Mine go ahead as down The Track one doesn't have to be a Genius to imagine what the outcome will be as it's impossible to stop The Poison from Tailing Dams Leaching out,I've seen it many times locally where the Acids from The Power Station & The Mine Tailings from Washeries have killed Thousands of Fish as well as Eels.
Brian.
